These mini egg muffins are the perfect meal prep breakfast! Make a couple of batches to get you through the entire week!
As some of you know, I’m turning my focus on meal prep around here. It’s something you guys have been asking for for a long time and I am finally settling down into life here in the south enough to start focusing on things like this. One of the easiest meals to prep is breakfast, and this recipe is a perfect example.
HOW TO FREEZE EGG MUFFINS
Egg muffins are perfect for stocking your freezer. Mini or not, they freeze really well for up to about 4 months. So you could make several batches of these and freeze them for future breakfasts. They are small and travel well and all you have to do is thaw in the fridge overnight, or microwave them in 20 second intervals until thawed and warmed through.
HOW LONG ARE EGG MUFFINS GOOD FOR?
In the fridge, egg muffins can last up to a week. But for food safety reasons, I usually tell people to stick them in the freezer after day 3 or 4 in the fridge. Better safe than sorry, and they freeze and thaw so well anyway, that it’s a no-brainer to just pop them in to freeze.
Egg muffins are quite possibly the perfect meal prep food. They come together super quick, are budget friendly, store well, and travel easily when you just have to get out of the house in the morning. These will thaw in the microwave in the time it takes you to pour your morning cup of coffee!
WHAT TO SERVE WITH THESE?
The possibilities are pretty endless. My favorite pairings are fruit such as berries, some nuts or even some sautéed mushrooms if time permits. Mini Chef loves them with a side of blueberries and almonds. You could even add some savory oatmeal on the side (which is really more like risotto) if you don’t want anything sweet with your egg muffins. Keep it simple and don’t overthink your sides.
